👀 Hammers is mountain biking heaven, offering both very flowy trails and picturesque views. It's definitely worth the drive and rewards us with a nice little café at the end of the ride.
🤙 This will be a fun day regardless of your ability. Trail centers are continuously maintained and all trail features will be rollable. Your leader will have a quick chat with you at the beginning to make sure the group only does trails everybody will have fun shredding down. If you're looking to get back in the saddle, this could be a great opportunity!
